One of my family’s motto is “Travelling is a must” because it’s the only time everyone can bond and relax. So if you’re feeling tired of your daily routines, then it’s about time to take a break.

I highly recommend going to Pattaya and Bangkok, especially if you’re looking for a quick yet fulfilling family vacation. They’re both (surprisingly) family-friendly destinations with tons of exciting attractions, as well as eating and shopping spots that’ll delight both kids and adults.

Best of all, they’re so close to each other, allowing you to enjoy the best of both cities in just 5D4N!

Not sure how to travel? No worries, we’ve planned the perfect itinerary for you, so all you need to do is use this itinerary and have a blast with your family!

This itinerary includes everything you’ll need for a fun-filled family vacation in Pattaya and Bangkok – from comfortable stays to amazing places to eat and shop at.

Getting There & Around

Pattaya is approximately 2 hours from Bangkok by car. Looking for the best way to get to and travel around Pattaya and Bangkok? For Pattaya, you’ll need to charter or rent a car to move around the city as public transport is difficult to get.

On the other hand, you can take the BTS, MRT, taxi or Grab to move around in Bangkok (from 16 Baht / approx. USD $0.51).

1. SIM Card 131 Baht / USD $4.35 (8 days validity)
Unlike other countries, not many places in Thailand offer free WiFi. Getting a SIM Card with unlimited internet ensures you won’t ever get lost (with the help of Google Maps) and lets you connect with your friends and family anytime, anywhere.
2. Car charter (with driver) From 1,895 Baht / USD $62.69
Move around in Pattaya according to your customised itinerary via Klook’s private car charter with a driver for complete comfort and convenience – no more dealing with tours taking you to unwanted destinations.
3. Car rental without driver From 1,000 Baht / approx. USD $33.08 per day
Confident about driving on unfamiliar roads? Enjoy driving around? If yes, consider renting a car from Ezy, AVIS, or Hertz. (Prices vary depending on the car model.)
4. Airport transfer From 920 Baht / USD $30.45
Hailing a cab to/from Don Mueang or Suvarnabhumi airport can be difficult, especially if you have a lot of luggage or if it’s during peak hours. Booking an airport transfer ensure you’ll get to the airport conveniently and on time.
5. Rabbit Card (for BTS) From 115 Baht / USD $3.75
When possible, it’s highly recommended to take the BTS in Bangkok to avoid traffic as traffic can get very bad at certain areas (especially during peak hours). By getting a Rabbit Card (with stored value of 200 baht) or a one-day pass, you can forgo lining up in ticket counters to buy the card or queuing for one-way tickets. When you’ve used up the credits, you can easily top-up your card at any BTS ticket counters.
6. Luggage services From 398 Baht / USD $13.89
Want to spend more time to shop? By using a luggage service, you can send your luggage to your hotel or airport ahead of your arrival without any hassle. 

Note: For this itinerary, we’ll be using Swiss Hotel Pattaya and The Residence Rajtaevee Hotel as the default accommodation.

Day 1

Have a blast at the world’s first Cartoon Network water park

If you’ve taken the earliest flight to Bangkok, you’ll be ready to leave the airport by 10am and reach Pattaya by noon – just in time for you to have lunch before travelling around the city.

PS: It takes approximately 2 hours to reach Pattaya so grab some light breakfast or snacks from the convenience store in case anyone gets hungry on the road.

Seafood lunch by the beach – Pupen Seafood (1 hour)

Seafood is a must-eat when you’re at the beach, and that applies to Pattaya too! At this beachside restaurant, find loads of delicious, fresh seafood cooked Thai-style, from crab curry to steamed fish with lime and chilli. Remember to get their ice-cream placed in colourful crab bowls too (you can take the bowls home)!

PS: They also sell freshly-grilled pork satays (sold at the stall in front of the store’s entrance).

Play and swim in this island paradise – Koh Larn Half-Day Tour (4.5 hours)

Enjoy a local breakfast by the market – Pattaya Floating Market (1.5 hours)

Thailand is famous for its floating market (along with Venice’s canals), so why not visit one since you have the chance? Here, pass by numerous stalls selling Thai snacks and souvenirs as well as local eateries you can have a filling meal at.

If you’re not afraid of water, ride on one of the boats across the market, just like what traditional floating markets sellers use. Your kids will love this experience!

Hopefully, you’ve had a great rest because it’s time for another day of fun and shopping! Spend the entire day at Siam and Pratunam by shopping at The Market and Big C and playing at Kidzania. If you’re not ready to end your day early, enjoy more shopping at Liab Duan Night Market.

Hidden boat noodles that’s been around for almost 40 years – Lung Prathunam Boat Noodles (45 minutes)

Start off your morning with a warm bowl of boat noodles. This shop is tucked away down a dark alley so the hesitations might get real, but it’s well worth the wander with a bowl this good.

If you’re brave enough, try their pig’s blood/cow’s blood soup with noodles and minced meat, served in a rich, dark soy broth. We’d recommend adding the crispy wontons or pork skin to your dish!

But for kids or those that prefer to avoid eating the “bloody” ingredients, you can try something else such as their Yong Tau Foo Noodle and enjoy the pink sweet, spicy and sour taste.

Day 4 Route

Day 5

Go on a last-minute shopping spurt before heading back home

Alas, all things must come to an end. But before you leave Bangkok, enjoy a magical brunch at a garden cafe and do some last-minute shopping at a Japanese mall. If your flight is scheduled for later in the evening, opt to take your kids for a flight simulation experience where they can become pilots for a short while.

A fairytale palace or a magical garden? How about both – The Gardens of Dinsor Palace (1 hour)

It’s never too early to be prince charming & the princess living in a fairytale. And with this being the morning of your last day in Bangkok, there’s no better time than now.

What was once built as the home for a royal princess, has now been transformed into the most romantic ‘palace garden’, the perfect place to have brunch or dinner at (and with plenty of magical instagrammable spots too).

As for food, there’s a wide range of delectable Western options ranging from brunch favourites like Duck Confit & Crispy Waffle to Mushroom Risotto & Truffle Oil.

Shop at Japan’s famous discount chain store – DONKI Mall Thonglor (2 hours)

Just opened in February 2019, you can now get the same Japanese stuff you would have bought in the Land of Sakura.

Okonomiyaki toy set for kids? Japanese seasonings? Or even fresh strawberries to eat on the way to the airport? Find everything at DONKI Mall Thonglor!

Before you leave, have lunch at one of the numerous Japanese restaurants here, which serves dishes from all over Japan.

FYI: Visit Legend Castle, a magic cafe where Japanese in-house magicians will show you tricks that’ll bedazzle both adults and kids, or D-Sports Stadium, an indoor sports complex where you can play various types of sports (in case your kids get restless while shopping).

(Optional) Soar Like An Eagle – Flight Simulation Experience (30 minutes to 1 hour)

If you’ve ever wanted to fly a passenger jet, Flight Experience Bangkok is for you. This aviation entertainment center offers visitors the chance to operate a Boeing 737-800NG flight simulator. You’ll be able to practice your take-offs and landings, fly from one city to another or fly around your choice of landmark. (Our vote goes to The Grand Palace.)

If you’ve done this before, add some extra challenges to your simulation such as landing in bad weather or programming the autopilot.

This activity is recommended for children above age 11, but it’s sure to be a memorable experience for everyone. The simulator can seat 3 people, so you’ll be able to watch your kids either soar like an eagle or crash and burn.
